They Weren't Kidding: What a storm....I've never seen anything like it. 1/2 my town (Saugus, MA) is still without power and it could have been worse. We had 45 MPH sustained winds with gusts near 80. A couple of gusts shook the house. I can't even imagine what it was like in New Jersey where Sandy came ashore. All things considered, we did rather well in Massachusetts.
